Thrifting In Worcester

My buddy, in Connecticut, has had great luck finding Tiki in the Thrift Stores, down there. I however, get skunked everytime I go thrifting in Worcester. Well, the past month, I decided to look for more than just Tiki on my thrifting expeditions. I don't know why it took me so long to figure this out. First, I scored 2 great vintage shirts. This dead-stock, late 50's/early 60's Arrow & an amazing Italian Gabardine for $2.99 & $5.99.
I decided to check out the CDs, too & scored these two great additions to my music library, for two bucks each. "Peggy The Pin-Up Girl" is a great tune, I'd never heard before.
On the same day I scored the CDs, I also found these 6 Hawaiian albums for $.99 each.
And....this killer hat, that's going to be made into a lamp, for The Mauna Kai Lounge. For now, it'll keep Mr. Tiki's head warm!


  1. Nice! I never go into thrift stores looking for something; the times I have, I've found nothing! Not even maybes. It's very rare I leave a thrift with absolutely nothing.

  2. I'm hooked now, Rueby. I'll keep posting my thrifting exploits.

  3. I love island music and Tiki. Nice.

  4. Stellar finds, I especially like the Italian gabardine shirt. That classic hue reminds me a lot of some of the shirts my late grandfather used to wear when I was little.
